Instructions for Submissions

The nominee can be an individual, firm, or organization from the United States or abroad.

The nominee may submit him or herself.

Others can suggest the nominee, but must deliver a complete submission. Email suggestions for nominees will not be considered without materials. Instructions follow below.

Note: The ICA&CA has a policy of keeping past submissions on file for future consideration. Submissions are welcome from both first-time applicants as well as those who have submitted in previous years. Should a past applicant wish to send updated materials or have a previous submission removed from consideration, please contact ICA&CA Senior Vice President, Henrika Taylor at

Format for Submissions

We request a single binder or folder (of standard size) of no more than 25 excellent images, drawings, or photographs that illustrate the range and depth of the nominee’s work. It is not necessary to submit elaborate or time-consuming and expensive-to-produce presentations. In the interest of space constraints, large format portfolios are discouraged. The binder or folder should also include captions that identify and briefly explain the work.

Slides, electronic files, or CD’s should NOT be sent and cannot be considered.
